We're just starting work on renovations and additions to the United Methodist Church of Enfield anticipating a Spring 2010 construction start on what's shaping up to be an interesting and challenging project.

Also, the First National Bank renovations and adaptive re-use project in Greenfield may finally be getting some legs. The project includes five new stadium style theaters, a new entry and bar space and concession spaces. After three years of predevelopment work, we're hopeful that this project is going to move ahead this fall with construction beginning in Spring 2010.

The New Africa House renovations at UMASS were successfully bid, Fontaine Bros. of Springfield will begin this work in early October with anticipated completion August 2010.

Our many trips to Nichols College over the last three years have come to an end with completion of the second of two residence halls there. The project, two parallel buildings framing a formal quadrangle, creates a new center for the campus. All in all, a very successful project and at $50,000 per bed, well under the median costs for suite style housing of this sort.
